Teenagers are being possessed and turning into sadistic murderers. Priests can’t help, nor can psychiatrists. So who is behind the demonic possessions? Jack Nightingale is called in to investigate, and finds his own soul is on the line.
San Francisco Night is the seventh novel in the Jack Nightingale supernatural detective series.
‘Another great thriller from Stephen Leather but this time with a devilish twist!’ James Herbert
‘Written with panache, and a fine ear for dialogue, Leather manages the collision between the real and the occult with exceptional skill’ Daily Mail
‘A stunning masterclass in darkness from a ferocious talent who excels in putting the devil in the details’ Daily Record
Jack is back in the sixth book in the Nightingale series.
Ideally it would be better to have read other books in the series so you can fully enjoy this book. The main reason is there are a few characters that have been with Jack for some if not all of the series and the background to these characters is something you do not want to miss out on.
Stephen Leather has written yet another brilliantly thrilling novel full of demons and devils galore.
One person I do miss from the earlier books is Jenny, Jacks assistant and I wish Stephen could find a way to bring her back as, as much as I enjoy these books there has been a sense of something missing. In this book though there is a new strong female role, Perez. Maybe this is a lady that will be making more appearances and will fill the female void that I have missed.
Fans of the Nightingale series certainly will not be disappointed with the latest in the series. Jack is his usual superstitious self, he seems to be even more wittier than usual also. I loved how many times the americans mistook him for being an australian and you could feel his patience running out. New York Night is certainly a dark and chilling read that seems to have more blood and gore than usual and it certainly made for a chilling read that does not disappoint.
As soon as I pick up one of this authors books I know I am in for a fast paced read that will have me hooked from beginning to end. The Jack Nightingale series is great for fans who like crime books mixed with the super natural.
New York Night is available to purchase from Amazon
